Buchanan’s Birthplace State Park is an 18.5-acre park nestled in a gap of Tuscarora Mountain in Franklin County. The park and the surrounding forested mountains offer an abundance of beauty throughout the year.
In addition to the president’s memorial are two picnic pavilions, picnic tables, restrooms and drinking water. Buck Run flows through the park and hosts a population of native trout. Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission regulations on approved trout waters apply to Buck Run.
The Tuscarora Trail passes to the west of the park. The trail serves as a bypass to the Appalachian Trail and follows the crest of the Tuscarora Mountain.
